Controlling order of learner interactions
I've created a slide with a flow diagram interaction. The learner can click on buttons on each step of the diagram to view explanatory notes presented on different layers. I've created triggers with 'visited' states to prevent the learner from clicking the steps out of order. When each button is clicked, the layer that is viewed shows all clicked buttons as another colour so they know where they are in the diagram.
As the triggers I've used are only controlled by whether a button has been previously clicked, not whether a layer has actually been viewed, it is still possible for a learner to go through the steps out of order. Is there a way of controlling things by what the learner has actually viewed? i.e. the layers?
At the end of the flow diagram I have two steps branching out from one step - that is, one step goes one way, the other goes the other way. Really, the learner should be able to click either one of these steps first, however I only know how to control what they see in a linear direction. Is there a way for me to control things so that they are able to click either button first and view the appropriate information? At present, if they click one of the buttons first, then only that button will show as shaded when clicked. They can only click the other button after the first one, and then both buttons will show as shaded. Corresponding layers for both buttons show different information.
I don't know if I've explained all of that well, but please help if you understood or ask for clarification.
